A NOD TO THE 70’S

I have been in the need of new skirts lately and decided to check out ASOS, since I hadn’t been on their site for nearly a month (that’s a loooong time for me). I tend to check out my go-to fashion sites several times a week to see what new goodies they get in stock. It’s a major problem of mine because it inevitably leads to me wanting to buy more and more! Honestly I’m out of room in my closet so I don’t even know where any new stuff would go, but yet the search continues.

While looking through the new items, I realized that 70s style is on-trend again. I mean, check out these skirts from ASOS, these pieces from Zara and even the new Reformation collection. Hey I’m not complaining. I can’t say I was always a fan of 70s,  but I find myself drawn to this style. And guess what makes these styles even better?! Go ahead guess…….they come in fall hues!! Ahh and I just posted about my love of fall colors so I am beyond excited and cannot wait to get my hands on some of these 70s-style goodies!

Just look at all that denim and suede. Those materials scream fall and 70s! Feel free to pair these items with a peasant top or some chunky clog sandals (a la Charlotte Stone) to keep with with the 70s trend!

CURRENT INSPIRATION

As much as I love the warmer weather and laying out by the pool, I am ready for fall. I’m ready for cool breezes and chunky sweaters. I’m ready for tights and booties. And I’m ready for fall colors — burnt orange, mustard, neutrals!! Burnt orange is by far my favorite color and I’m so excited to bring it out!! I mean I do wear it year round — I’m not one to wear specific colors only during certain times of the year — but burnt orange just screams fall!

Sorry for the picture overload. I was just too excited for the new season and couldn’t pick just a couple pictures! I loved them all!

“Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts with its last beauty, as if nature has been saving up all year for the grand finale.”

SIDETRACKED

How much simpler can this outfit get?! I just threw on one of my Christy Dawn dresses and some booties (though you don’t get to see them in the pictures). I could live in Christy Dawn’s dresses. They are so comfy yet stylish and they don’t require a lot of accessories — or any at all really.

I was taking a quick trip to Ice Cream Jubilee with my mom and my fiancè when I spotted this graffiti wall and had to stop. I don’t think my fiancè was really happy with me because he does not like driving in unfamiliar areas and I was taking him off course. But he can’t say no to me! Haha.

FOLKLORIC

I saw this printed Penny dress on Reformation’s Instagram about a week before the garment came out and I knew I had to have it. I love the wrap style of the dress, which allows you to decide how loose or tight you want the dress to be, and the all-over rainbow floral print!

It also just so happens that I wore this dress to an interview with Anthropologie and I got the job!! Guess there’s a little bit of luck infused into the dress as well. Haha!

The dress is currently sold out, but Reformation has a waitlist so I’d hurry up and get your name on the list because you don’t want to miss out on this beauty!

TAKING THE PLUNGE

I’ve always loved having smaller assets because they work really well with the clothing I like to wear…and I can get away without wearing a bra as was the case with this dress (ahh so comfy!!).

This Reformation dress is the right amount of sexy and sophistication. It has a plunging neckline, yet it also has a midi length so that way I don’t show too much skin. However, even with my small ta-tas I still had to keep an eye on my cleavage and make sure there were no boobies popping out! Besides that little issue, this dress is honestly so comfortable and really an easy way to feel like a million bucks!

I’m such a huge fan of the Reformation brand, not only because they make killer clothes, but because the brand is also eco-friendly. If you aren’t familiar, I suggest you check out their site. Their clothing is a little pricey, but totally worth it. Trust me, I own at least 30 Reformation pieces!! And for those of you who aren’t like me and have an ample bosom, they just released their second collection designed for women with C-DD breasts!! Shop away!

P.S. Here’s a little secret for those of you on a budget. If you check eBay, you can usually find pre-owned Reformation pieces in amazing condition for a fraction of the price! That’s where I got this dress for $83 (originally $148).
